Orange Zucchini Cake

READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by Donna M.

The addition of orange makes this zucchini cake a bit different. Recipe came out of the food section of a newspaper in the 1970's

Top Review by MEAN CHEF

Made this cake for a catering job in a full sheet pan. For my taste the spices a bit overwhelmed the zucchini flavor. In my second try I doubled the amount of zucchini and the cake came out just fine. Very light and fluffy. Good crumb. With 50 - 100% more zucchini it would be a 5 star cake.
